Execute commands in a chroot environment

dchroot allows users to execute commands or interactive shells in different chroots. A typical installation might provide 'stable', 'testing' and 'unstable' chroots. Users can move between chroots as necessary.

This package provides a dchroot-dsa binary which is compatible with the command-line options and configuration file format used by the dchroot-dsa dchroot maintained by the Debian System Administrators used on machines administered for the Debian Project.

NOTE: the schroot package provides a better implementation of dchroot-dsa. In particular:

 * dchroot-dsa only allows the specification of a single command with
   an absolute path, and no options may be used with the command;
   schroot allows the use of relative and absolute paths with no
   limit on the number of options.
 * dchroot-dsa only allows one chroot to be used at once; schroot will
   allow the use of as many chroots as desired.
 * dchroot-dsa allows access to be restricted to named users; schroot
   implements finer-grained access controls based on users and groups,
   either of which may be granted the ability to gain root access to
   the chroot if required.
Using schroot will avoid these issues, as well as provide significant additional functionality dchroot-dsa does not possess.
